We took our son, who is a Shippensburg University student out to breakfast. This place is right across the street from campus. Lots of students in there. We had a good breakfast, came out fast. Waitress was very attentive. Good prices. Decorated nicely for the holidays, very cute.

Nov 1st. I stopped in at noon. Place was hopping. I had the Chicken Rice Soup and Tuna Salad with Olive Oil Dressing. All good. As they say in Heidelberg, Germany, "Die Suppe war besonders gut!" The soup was especially good! I will be back. Danke, thank you. Food is consistently good here.
